  • Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have ended their relationship.
  • The two started dating in early 2020, shortly after they were spotted taking a trip to Cuba together.
  • "They are in different points in their lives," a source said of their split, adding: "there is deep love and respect there."

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have called it quits.

In March 2020 the two first made headlines having taken a trip together to Cuba. The Knives Out star also spent much time getting closer to Ben's kids, whom he shares with Jennifer Garner. Ana and Violet, Seraphina and Samuel even played a prank on dear old dad, which involved a life-size cut out of the 32-year-old actress.

"Ben is no longer dating Ana," a source confirmed to People. "She broke it off. Their relationship was complicated. Ana doesn't want to be Los Angeles based and Ben obviously has to since his kids live in Los Angeles."

Another insider added: "This is something that was mutual and something that is completely amicable. They are in different points in their lives; there is deep love and respect there. Ben continues to want to work on himself. He has three jobs lined up, and he's a solid father at home. They are both happy with where they are in their lives."

"Both of them have completely full lives in a good way," a third source told E! News. "There will always be that love."

That being said, shortly after news of their split, Ana was seen rocking a new, shorter hairdo, while, in a rather dramatic turn of events, People reported "Ben Affleck isn't one for keepsakes", having spotted one life-size cutout of Ana de Armas tossed in the trash outside the Justice League actor's home.
